Ryobi has launched its new Score wireless speaker system. Now available and sold exclusively at The Home Depot, Score utilizes SKAA technology from Eleven Engineering for a 150-foot wireless range, and can connect up to four additional hub and satellite (primary and secondary) speakers instantly.
“By connecting your Bluetooth device first to a primary speaker, you now have the ability to connect up to four additional Score primary or secondary speakers instantly using SKAA technology,” said Brian Mertel, Ryobi senior director of product management. “With up to 150 feet of SKAA range from a primary speaker, these speakers can be placed virtually anywhere on a residential or commercial jobsite or in the home, such as the backyard, garage, basement, kids’ rooms, etc. and stream through your walls and floors. This would not be able to be done with such high performance consistency without SKAA as our wireless technology.”
SKAA is a wireless Hi-Fi audio standard developed by Eleven Engineering. SKAA transmitters work with iOS and Android mobile devices, Mac and Windows computers, televisions, and just about any product with a line output or a headphone jack. SKAA is also available as a built-in technology not requiring an external transmitter in purpose-designed partner products, which are featured at SKAA.com.
“When we discussed SKAA with RYOBI, it quickly became apparent that SKAA was the perfect technology for Score,” said Rex Whitehead, Eleven Engineering director of sales, North America. “SKAA is ridiculously easy to use: all compatible products are ready to play right out of the box. It’s also highly flexible, being compatible with a fantastic breadth of audio sources, such as the Score wireless speaker systems. Plus, SKAA receivers can effortlessly switch from source to source. And don’t forget rock-solid reliability, great range, and CD-quality sound. SKAA.com is the source for all things SKAA.”
Score features a high-quality driver and passive radiator for clear, robust sound. They are compatible with any Ryobi ONE+ 18-Volt battery, include an AC power adaptor, Bluetooth enabled for quick mobile device to primary speaker connection, and an integrated FM tuner with five presets for more listening options (P760 primary speaker only).
